Computer Camp


Web design and software programming are perhaps the most sought-after skills in this hi-tech era. For tech-savvy students who want a leg up on the competition by building critical computer skills early in life, or for students who just love gaming, design and logic, Education Unlimited’s Computer Camp offers hands-on instruction in both creative and practical computer skills. Experienced instructors encourage students to use their imaginations while exploring fundamental and emerging technologies and software.

Why an Education Unlimited Computer Camp?

  • Individualized Instruction: EU seeks to offer the most personalized instruction possible, with separate sessions for elementary, middle and high school campers that break students into skill-level groups. Students are placed in small classes with remarkably low student to teacher ratios. On the first day, instructors assess each student’s previous experience and knowledge in order to challenge them appropriately and provide a fun, tailored learning experience.
  • A Computer for Each Student: Each student receives his/her up-to-date PC during the course of the program. 
  • Top Instructors. We recruit instructors from top Universities and/or hire experienced industry professionals. Each instructor has a specialty in some aspect of web programming and/or design, in addition to experience working with K-12 students.
  • University Campus Life: Students at Computer Camp live in the heart of American computer innovation- the San Francisco Bay Area. Participants eat in university dining halls and take classes on-campus. They play sports on sprawling green quads, watch movies in dorm lounges, and get a taste of the exciting life of a college student on a prestigious campus.
  • Challenging Core Curriculum: Each session gives students an opportunity to focus on a particular specialty.

A few words from our Computer Camp Campers!

"My son enjoyed it [web development course, Stanford], and I felt it worth the money for the following reasons.

  • 8 hours/day of teaching on web development covering coding that my son didn't know as well as reviewing areas my son did know
  • Field trip to computer museum to see history of computer science 
  • Students had to come up with a presentation by end of week and had to to a crash project to demonstrate that they learned something.  Presentations were done in a classroom. All had impressive projects
  • Students also get one field trip to Santa Cruz Boardwalk to relax and get to hang with each other.
  • International and national student exposure.  My son's roommate was from Arkansas.  Some of his classmates were from Florida and London, England and New York City.
  • I extensively spoke to [the instrictors] Michael and Navid.  Navid really put thought into this program.  Michael has real world practical experience in web development and CS programming, so he had great advice to help me guide my son.
  • I looked at [other Bay Area computer camps], but after searching reviews on the internet, they seemed to be more into providing fun games and times for kids and less on class time of real programming.  My son had to do intense work on his web presentation.
  • Finally it was good for my son to get out and experience the college life.  I think parents who enroll kids in this course are looking for more serious courses."

"The best feature of this camp was the amazing amount of time we spent doing practice applications with the programming language, gaining lots of hands on experience." — Murtaza Munaim 

“(The instructor) is fun and lets us learn hands-on and is there when we need help...I want to come back.” — Cathy McDermott
